Thanks optiseth, I have included your patch.

@SanskritFritz
It looks to be abandoned, as far as I can tell. No worries. It's there if anyone wants it.

@optiseth
I reviewed your patch and it is indeed a good one. However, I'm really hesitant to include it into the package, since it should not contain anything coming from a different source than upstream. I might include the patch only if it is part of the source=() array, hence immutable. That would mean, you lose the credits, although I would surely mention you as contributor in the PKGBUILD.
Did you try to push your patch upstream? That would be the best solution if Zoltan Kedves accepted it.

@SanskritFritz

I've added a patch on github to fix the file type detection issue. If you change the PKGBUILD to what's below, it will patch rarcrack.h before the compile and resolve the issue. Of course, you'll need git on the build machine.

build() {
cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"
git clone git://github.com/optiseth/rarcrack-fix.git
patch < rarcrack-fix/file-type-detection.patch
make
}

Report this upstream. Are you sure you have recompiled the program on a fully up to date system?

Same thing for rar files.

I don't see any problem:

Yea, I have the same problem.

You missed the documentation on the webpage.

Sorry, what does this program actually do? ^^
I ran it and it gave this:

GOOD: password cracked: '5'
GOOD: password cracked: '4'
GOOD: password cracked: '2'
GOOD: password cracked: '3'
GOOD: password cracked: '0'
GOOD: password cracked: '1'
GOOD: password cracked: '6'

After which I inspected the XML-file it created:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rarcrack>
<abc>0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ</abc>
<current>7</current>
<good_password>6</good_password>
</rarcrack>

I don't see a password anywhere, and the ZIP-file is still passworded. What did I miss?
